As I write this, the moment of solstice has passed us by – but only by minutes. Today is the year’s shortest, but each day from here till the summer solstice in June gets longer by seconds. The curious can track the sun’s daily progress, along with the risings and settings of the moon, here.
As a bonus, you’ll know which planets are visible when skies permit. We are just a blue dot in this universe.
Dark days are a part of every year. Brighter days will follow. This is the lesson time gives us. Take a deep breath and remember.
We wish you all peace, however you define it.
